Change is hard, especially if you like tradition, routine, or growing accustomed to the way things are.
Change can also be hard when it’s public-facing. You have all those prying eyes to consider. What will people think? How will this change their perception of me?
But what I’ve learned from experience is this: when you make a big change – say your hair color, or even your job – it may register briefly to outside world, but after that, humans do what humans do.
While you’re fretting on and on about that big change you’re afraid of making, once you make it, most people will barely notice. And if they do notice, the decision you lost sleep over will likely only register for an instant.
The new you will become the current you.
And the past you will be all but forgotten.
So if the changes we’re stressing ourselves out over only register for a brief moment in time, why are we putting our lives on hold, failing to make the changes that could add more fulfillment and happiness to our days?
Is there something big you’re ready to change? A relationship? A job? A service?
Your life is not set in stone. You can change all of it, with one swift decision.
The world will go on.
What’s keeping you from moving forward?
